  • A Democrat 2020 Issue? Let's Abolish ICE

    03/21/2018 11:20:19 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 27 replies ^ | March 21, 2018 | Matt Vespa,
    We’re a nation of laws. We have federal immigration laws for a reason. The days of Ellis Island and Vito Corleone’s story are over. This is about ensuring people who come here arrive legally. It’s to make sure terrorists don’t have an open door into America. There is nothing racist about enforcing exiting immigration laws, but this is problematic for Democrats. Part of it is the party’s aversion to white people. Another aspect is that Democrats see millions in untapped voter potential with all the illegals that are here. They want open borders. They don’t want enforcement, and they certainly...

    The Trump administration's aggressive immigration enforcement policies are causing widespread psychological distress among many Latino parents of adolescents, including not just undocumented mothers and fathers, but parents who are in the country legally and aren't at risk for deportation, according to a study published this month in the Journal of Adolescent Health.

    Trump’s DOJ filed a lawsuit against California late Tuesday evening over their dangerous and unlawful sanctuary city policy being enforced by politicians such as Governor Jerry Brown. Speaking in Sacramento Wednesday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions blasted California lawmakers for protecting illegal aliens in their ‘sanctuary cities.’ House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) immediately fired back at the Trump administration’s move to finally put an end to the insanity of sanctuary cities. The Democrats don’t even try to hide it anymore. They openly fight for the invaders who are leeching, killing and raping American citizens. Pelosi tweeted: “The people of California...

    In a development that’s reflective of the widening chasm of viewpoints on the treatment of illegal aliens in America, a big city mayor, Oakland’s Libby Schaaf, issued a public warning of impending Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) immigration sweeps.The arrests went forward anyway, netting more than 150, including several wanted for serious and violent crimes. Acting ICE boss Tom Homan wasted no time in calling the mayor the equivalent of a gang lookout and pointing to the difficulties ICE faces in “sanctuary” jurisdictions like Oakland and San Francisco, saying, “Because these jurisdictions prevent ICE from arresting criminal aliens in the...

    AUSTIN (KXAN) — Travis County Sheriff’s Office deputies do not have rifle-resistance vests because Sheriff Sally Hernandez will not commit to hold all arrested undocumented immigrants for deportation. In January, Governor Abbott announced the state would fund $23 million in grants to purchase 33,000 vests for more than 450 law enforcement departments. Every agency that applied for vests received them. Travis County did not apply for the grant because one condition from the governor’s office required the agency to “sign a letter confirming compliance with ICE detainer requests both now and during the grant term of at least one year,”...
  • The True Biblical Response to Illegal Immigration and DREAMers

    My Congressman Ted Lieu (D-Torrance) hosted another error-ridden town hall in Hermosa Beach last week. On immigration, he claimed to support two parts of President Trump’s proposed(?) plan: granting legal status to 1.8 million young illegals; and enhancing border security (although Lieu called the border wall “stupid”). He differed on ending chain migration and the diversity lottery. He quoted the Bible in his defense: “For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in.” (Matthew 25:35).My response: “Then take them...

    Former President George W. Bush was supportive of the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program Thursday, as he told an audience at a summit in Abu Dhabi that the U.S. needs to “welcome” them. Beyond that, he said at the summit hosted by the Milken Institute, a California-based economic think tank, that Americans should be thanking the illegal immigrants for doing jobs they refuse to do. "Americans don’t want to pick cotton at 105 degrees, but there are people who want put food on their family’s tables and are willing to do that,” he said, according to The Associated...

    According to Indiana State Police, Manuel Orrego-Savala, the man suspected of killing Colts player Edwin Jackson and his Uber driver Jeffrey Monroe, is a twice-deported illegal immigrant from Guatemala. Police say that Orrego-Savala was driving drunk when he caused the fatal accident on Sunday morning. Earlier today, local news station CBS 4 provided details of the circumstances of the deadly incident: Police believe Monroe was working as an Uber driver and Jackson was his passenger. At some point Jackson became sick, so Monroe pulled over on the side of I-70 just west of Holt Road shortly before 4 a.m. They were...

    Buckle Up!Late Tuesday, the President’s State of the Union address and Democratic response were completed around 11:00 p.m. Eastern, but MSNBC kept it going live until 2:00 a.m. Eastern on Wednesday. While it’s doubtful you stayed up to watch, you missed some mind-numbingly stupid quotes. Whether it’s suggesting Trump has committed treason or ghoulishly laughing about people fearing MS-13 gang violence, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, Joy Reid, and Ron Reagan succeeded in stooping to the lowest of lows. So, here they are (presented in chronological order): 1. Matthews Questions Trump Honoring Families of MS-13 Victims

    President Donald J. Trump returned to Twitter today in typical fashion after a quick trip overseas for the World Economic Forum. President Trump jumped right back into the debate over the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program (DACA), accusing Democrats of not actually wanting to solve the problem. I have offered DACA a wonderful deal, including a doubling in the number of recipients & a twelve year pathway to citizenship, for two reasons: (1) Because the Republicans want to fix a long time terrible problem. (2) To show that Democrats do not want to solve DACA, only use it!— Donald...

    Fairfax County, Virginia Sheriff Stacey Kincaid’s announcement she would cancel an agreement with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to honor “detainers” for illegal alien criminals and arrestees has prompted pro-American immigration reformers to condemn the move for turning Fairfax into a “sanctuary county.” In the affluent suburban Washington, DC county, criminals and arrestees who ICE believes are illegal aliens subject to deportation will no longer be held for up to 48 after their release date so federal agents can pick them up. Virginia Republican U.S. Senate candidate Corey Stewart, who led an effort to force jails to report illegal...

    If I’d told you 2 years ago journalists would scramble to “report” on the allegation President Donald Trump wanted to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller seven months ago like it A) just happened, and B) actually happened (as in he was fired), you would’ve thought I was lying to you. But it’s all too real, and someone will likely win a journalism award for it. But in an age of frantic reporting over rumors, lies, and non-stories, the pearl-clutching class chose a faux-scandal over some real news – that the White House is open to selling out on immigration. Oh,...

    Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Enforcement Removal Operations (ERO) announced Friday afternoon that they arrested 86 criminal aliens and other illegal immigrants during a three-day enforcement action operation earlier this week. Federal officers targeted “criminal aliens” in North Texas and Oklahoma, but arrested other immigration violators, such as those who came into the country legally and overstayed their permission or immigrants who committed criminal acts that would make them eligible for deportation. The press release states that “of the 86 arrested, 55 had criminal convictions; 82 were men and four were women. They range in age from 19 to 61 years...

    Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) believes the recent three-day government shutdown and the deal to end it on Monday gave Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients and other illegal immigrant Dreamers “a better chance” of getting a pathway to citizenship. Flake has been working with Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Dick Durbin (D-IL) on a bill that would give a “12-year pathway to citizenship for about 2 million” illegal immigrant Dreamers and “legal status for their parents.” On Monday, Senate Democrats agreed to a three-week spending bill in exchange for a DACA vote before February 8. “I do think that...

    President Donald J. Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) lambasted Democrats Saturday morning for their refusal to compromise on illegal immigration and forcing a government shutdown late Friday night. The Senate failed to reach the 60 votes necessary to continue funding the government after Democrats, led by Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), refused to support any spending bill that did not also address the problem of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA) program. DACA was an executive order issued by President Barack Obama in 2012 that granted protections for illegal immigrants brought into the country as children. Roughly 800,000...

    You might call them illegal immigrants. Others like “Dreamers.” But Dem Sen. Jeff Merkley of Oregon has come up with a new euphemism: “community members.” Interviewed on CNN this morning, Merkley, three times in less than a minute, spoke of “community members” when referring to people in the country illegally. He bemoaned the fact that “more than 100 lose their legal status each day.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    A California judge has to clear the courtroom after the defendant refused to buckle up and keep quiet during the proceedings. It’s been over three years since Luis Bracamontes, an illegal alien who had been arrested and deported multiple times in Arizona, went on a crime spree with his wife, Janelle Monroy that ended with two police officers killed. Bracamontes is on trial for the murders and faces the death penalty, his wife face life in prison. The Sacramento Bee reported that Bracamontes showed no remorse, said he would escape and kill more people, and said one cop that he...

    Major news outlets are already sounding the alarm about a possible government shutdown, assuming that a “clean” DACA bill is the hill that Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi want to die on this week. This may be a real option in their minds, or perhaps it’s just a game of brinksmanship to see what they can get out of President Trump and the GOP leadership. But either way, a flat amnesty package with nothing in return isn’t just “a Trump thing.” The majority of the Republicans aren’t warming up to the idea either. This seems particularly true of Arizona Congresswoman...

    When charges of “racism” and “xenophobia” fail, Democrats’ fallback argument against President Trump’s proposed border wall is that it simply “won’t work,” so why waste billions building it? Tell that to the residents of El Paso, Texas. . . . snip And crime abated with the reduced human traffic from Juarez, considered one of the most dangerous places in the world due to drug-cartel violence, helping El Paso become one of the safest large cities in America.
